Commenting upon the arrest and im
prisonment of the two young Cairo men,
charged with the theft of cows, at Mound
City on ThursJsy, the Pulaski Patriot says:
"Daring the past few months the people
of this city have been heavy losers by tin's
spieces of robbery. Thirty-seven cows, the
property of people who live in that portion
of this city west of Walnut Street, have
disappeared within a few months. This
wholesale robbery should be checked, if
not in one way thn in another. Cairo,
too, has sutftred not a little in this way for
several years. The other twjof the three
cows which brought tin young men to
grief, belong to Mr. II. A. Uinnon. All
were returned, anl fortunately th) butch'-r
who had bought them at Moun I City, also
got his money back.

In the Circuit Court yesterdiy the
Kate Cotton case was on trial all day, ex
cepting the time occupied by the Repub
lican County Convention which wus from
12:30 till 3 o'clock. The last witness for
the prosecution, Dr. McDowell, was on the
stand ill day. Witntss had male a chem
ical analysis of the stomach of the dead
mn, Jerry Thomp'on, and its contests, and
had discovered strong proof
ot the pri-sence of arsenic.
He brought bis mechanical apparatu with
him and, by a series of interesting test?,
demonstrated to the jury and others pres
ent how he had arrivid at his conclusions.
IIo probably satisfied ail who watched him
that his conclusions were correct, and that
arsenic was present in the contents of the
dead man"s etonml., an 1 it hi 4 testimony
had Btopped here, the cae of the prosecu
tion would have seemed clear and invulcra
ble. But he was not permitted to stop
here. He wms induced by Mr. Mulkey for
the defence to explode a bomb shell in the
camp of the prosecution, by testifying aNo,
that he had analyzed a j trof cofTuo brought
him by a negress name 1 Rigga, and that
the process ha I developed no traces of
poison in the coffee. The defence is pre
pared to prove that this cnlfee was the re
mains left iu the pot and in the cups from
which the Thompson family had been
drinking just before tboy were taken sick,
and that said remains were gathered up
immediately alter the alarm had been
given. Tho defence will produce r bout
twenty witnesses to prove its tlieery, which
seems to be that, while deceased may have
died from poison, the deadly dose was not
introduced into his stomach through th
instrumentality of the coffee prepared by
defendant. Tho caso may last tin greater
part of this week and promises to gain in
interest day after day till tho end, which,
everything consldeted, is as yet shrouded
in gravo doubt.

Cincinnati, O., May 21. An Enninj

from Senator Sherman In reply to a letter
from business men (not politicians) oa
the chances of the Presidential nomina
tion, says: "I have not thought my
nomination a probable thine, nor have I
.sought to influence the actiuu of the con
vention. If the nomination comes it will
be more grateful if unsought, and

bilities; if not I shall be content
without di.appoinfmeut. It Is hardly to
be expected that the Republicans of a
State as large a Ohio should all have
the same choice, especially for oue who
has beeu compelled to take so active a
part in politics ; still, the general good
will of the delegates seems to be assured,
and uo one on it could fairly be consid

The Indian Bureau and Ita Schools.
Washington, D. C, May 'i. The
Indian Bureau is much pleased wit!)
the recetit visit of the Indian Affairs
Committee to the Carlisle School. Tho
work of the Indian boys and girls wan
a revelation to tho statesmen who came
away with the impression that Capuiu
l'ratt, the Superintendent, Is In a fair
way to solve the Indian problem. The
.vtem of education i half-day work
and half-day study, and he believes in
the possibilities of the Indian to the
extent that he can learn any
thing iu or out of books as read
ily us the white child. The age
of the pupils are from eight to eighteen,
and there are nearly live hundred boys

finest sewing by hand or ou machine,
and the darning and mending surpasses
the work ot the jiale lace maiden by con-
I'lerabre. a here are tailor, shoe, tin,

work as apprentices, and do low

noiiie savage. The goods are sent to
Western agencies for sale, and as evl

I onzressinen were most delighted with
the penmanship, which was as legible as
print, and therefore a novelty to all the
law-makers who are not provided with
clerks. The Indian not only writes well,
but has a talent for drawing, aud he excels
iu mathematics. His spelling, rarely ever
Incorrect, also excited the admiration of
these statesmen, who do not always spell
correctly themselves. Captain Pratt's
theory is to teach and train the Indian
and when he Is capable ol self-support
give him the right of citizenship, and in
stead of sending him back to the reserva
tion to relapse Into his former state, let
him ko where he will .shift for himself
anil become absorbed in the white race
and its industries. Captain Pratt has got
t.'ie practical Ideas of Secretary Teller,
whoso very sensible letter, receutly pub
lished, showed the necessity of giving
the Indian a thoroughly practical train

of the boys and girls at the Curllsle School

girls learn to do general housework and

The Railway Land Forfeitures.
Washimiton, D. C, May 24. Tho
House Committee on Public Lands is de
termined to try to get action on its for
feiture bills. Chairman Cobb says he
proposes now to push them at every op
portunity, and thinks he will succeed hi
getting them through tho Bouse. He
docs not look upon the report of the Ju
diciary t'omimttee, which says the House
Las no right to forfeit the" "Illackborn
Grant" as a very serious matter, and
thinks the Bouse will pay no attention to
it. There are others, however, who
think differently, and who think that this
report about puts au end to tho much
vaunted forfeiture of railroad land grants
by this Congress.
"I do not think so, however," said Mr.
Cobb to your correspondent, as he .stood
iu the lobby talking over the prospects of
his bills; "I don't think the HoiisC wtil
pay any attention to this rvpoit, even i
this peculiar case. Even if it does it will
not be very serious, for the Illackborn
grant Is only about three million acres.
U is the big' ones, like the Atlantic i Pa

most important, and they will probably
not be affected by this."
